DUI crash victim Andrew Hall sues Shephard’s Beach Resort bar that served driver and cocaine dealer Joshua West.
TAMPA TRIBUNE….Andrew Hall has fought some big battles in the past year. He fought for his life after a drunk driver hit him and severed his left leg. He spent months in the hospital, undergoing rehab. Now Hall, 20, is ready for another fight. He’s suing Shephard’s Beach Resort, the bar that served Joshua West, the driver who hit him.
“I feel that Shephard’s could have exercised a lot more judgment and responsibility on their part,” Hall said today, sitting in his wheelchair at his attorney’s office.
According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, West was drinking at Shephard’s on Clearwater Beach on April 20. He drove away from the bar and hit Hall, who was standing outside his Safety Harbor apartment.
Hall’s attorney, Tom Carey, said an investigation into the crash revealed that West had been served 10 Long Island iced teas in just two hours at the bar. Carey said a bouncer kicked JOSHUA West out after he fell down on the way to the restroom. “Apparently the bouncer escorted him into the parking lot and to his car,” said Carey, more from this source…………...
